With Prescott neutralized, the Cowboys may be forced to lean on the run a bit more than they're used to, causing the game to be decided in the trenches. Denver's defense will make a lot of offenses look silly this season, but where Dallas remained firmly with their rushing game in the face of adversity last season, offensive coordinator Scott Linehan completely went away from it at the first sign of difficulty.
Elliott had just three carries in the first quarter. They returned to the field with 33 seconds left in the first quarter.
And remember: He's no Prescott, they said, and C.J. Anderson is no Elliott.
Washington 27, (at) L.A. Rams 20: Kirk Cousins (Michigan State) threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Ryan Grant with 1:49 to play to lift Washington.
Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib is third all-time in National Football League history for pick-sixes.
"I'm good, boss, " Bolles told 9News as he hobbled out of Broncos stadium Sunday night with a heavy boot on his left ankle and a walking cane in his right hand. What's more, Prescott has always been an accurate passer, completing 66.2 percent of his attempts during his senior year of college.
With Siemian's three touchdown's in the first half, it was the first time a Broncos quarterback has thrown for three touchdowns in the first half since Brock Osweiler did it on December 20, 2015 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Siemian short pass to Virgil Green, TOUCHDOWN!
This time, his biggest contribution was a 9-yard reception with around 6 minutes left in the blowout.

The game between the Dallas Cowboys and Denver Broncos was suspended toward the end of the first half because of lightning in the area of Sports Authority Field. As long as Siemian takes what defenses give him and know that the Broncos want to run the ball and play solid defense he will be fine. A 42-17 loss to Denver is bad enough.
The Cowboys pulled to 35-17 on Jason Witten's 28-yard catch that was set up by rookie Jourdan Lewis' (Michigan) interception when the receiver he was covering slipped. The pair has been so dominant game in and game out that you assume they're immune to the poor performances that dog other players. Dallas threatened two more times, but failed to cross the goal line on either.
It wasn't all flawless for Siemian though as he overthrew Thomas to have the pass intercepted. First, on fourth-and-3 at the Broncos' 7-yard line, Prescott's throw to Bryant fell incomplete.
Miller's streak without a sack came to an end on Sunday.
